The Digital Master 340 will demonstrate Bobst’s All-in-One label production concept with printing, finishing, die-cutting and quality control in a single pass. As every machine in the Digital Master series, it features Accucheck, Bobst proprietary inline inspection and calibration system. It also comes with full digital automation on all print and finishing modules, controlled via a single user-friendly interface that offers cloud-connectivity to Bobst Connect and third-party MIS integration.

Accucheck has been updated with new automatic quality inspection set-up and job queue synchronization, allowing customers to inspect every single job effortlessly. Calibration improvements include a new color uniformity feature, while advanced color-to-color registration now performs calibration in just 15 minutes. Additionally, the enhanced automatic nozzle compensation now includes deviated nozzles alongside missing ones.

Bobst’s label solutions are intended to address three major pain points: ease of use, workflow integration and color consistency across all technologies. In this regard, Bobst experts will be ready to discuss oneECG (Extended Color Gamut) printing technology for inline flexo presses which brings significant savings and sustainability benefits alongside improved color consistency.
